1984 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Whenever I try to start it anytime from a cold start it will not start right away. When it does start and warms up it will start everytime after that until it gets cold again. Whats my problem? I have used starter fluid a few times just to get it going faster rather than waiting for it to start.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check the fuel pressure if okay-inspect and test the coolant temperature sensor and clean out the idle air control valve

Would it have anything to do with the carb at all? It looks like to me that it has parts missing off of it. But im just a fly by night mechanic I dont really know. As soon as I can get it running I will get it tabs and take it to a dealership. But just wondering why this is doing that

Since you mentioned Carb-check the choke plate could be binding not opening -this will cause a hard cold starts

Remove the aircleaner from the carb-you will see a butterfly on top of the carb throat cracked it open with an object and attempt to start if it backfires and see fire out the carb continue cranking the engine till there's no fire-
